Pictured: Oscar award replica by artist Plastic Jesus
For those of you who want a quick review of the winners, check below.
As for the lead photo, it’s another controversial piece by L.A.-based street artist Plastic Jesus. The art installation, which was found on the corner of La Brea and Hollywood Blvd., is an 8-foot replica of the Oscar award holding a syringe to its forearm. Some think it’s referencing Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was recently found dead in his New York apartment of a suspected drug overdose.
From a winners standpoint, There weren’t any big surprises. And to be honest, I think even Ellen DeGeneres did fairly well hosting the event, even bringing down Twitter during the show when she Tweeted a star-packed selfie and asked her fans to retweet (more than 2 million people retweeted the photo). Her style of impromptu comedy works well with the format & I have a feeling the Academy would love to invite her back in the future.
Make sure you check the gallery for more pics of last night’s big winners sharing laughs and photo-ops in the press room, all while holding their Oscars.

It wasn’t too difficult to choose our favorite three on the red carpet. One woman is a Victoria’s Secret model (Lily Aldridge), another is a straight-up, Indian-flavored cougar (Padma Lakshmi) and the third is an Oscar-winning actress (Cate Blanchett), who beautiful disguises her freaky side with a classy exterior.
It’s always fun to make George Clooney jokes, but I don’t nothing but love for the guy. He should be a role model for all rich & single dudes. If you’re thinking about getting married & settling down with a couple kids, do some research on George’s life first before pulling the trigger.

The 2nd Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards went down tonight at the Star Event Centre in Sydney (it’s already the 31st over there). The Australian-produced comedy “The Sapphires” starring Chris O’Dowd, Deborah Mailman & Jessica Mauboy received the most feature-film nominations with twelve. The film currently has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so I gotta admit, I’m already very curious. Aside from that, Russell Crowe hosted the event. Hit the official website to view all the nominees.
Neither Lucy Pinder nor Rebecca Ferdinando appear in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey but Cate Blanchett stars as Galadriel, an elf and co-ruler of Lothlórien along with her husband, Lord Celeborn. As you might already know the film is the first in a series of three films directed, co-written and produced by Peter Jackson and based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s novel “The Hobbit”. The film is set to open in theaters on December 14th. For more info, visit The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey official website.
Bilbo Baggins, a curious young Hobbit is invited to journey with the wizard Gandalf the Grey and a group of Dwarves with the goal of reclaiming stolen treasure taken from their kin at the Lonely Mountain by the dragon Smaug.
The journey leads them from Bilbo’s home in the Shire through the Elven stronghold of Rivendell and through the Goblin infested Misty Mountains where Bilbo meets a creature with an object of mysterious qualities that will change his life, and the life of his family, forever. As they continue, they discover that other vile creatures also seek to destroy them. [Wiki]

Anyway, along with Cate Blanchett, Ewan McGregor, tennis legend Boris Becker & his baby-momma, Adriana Lima lit up the IWC Top Gun Gala held at the Palexpo Exhibition Hall in Geneva a couple days back.
